|The rectified gloss white tiles came in a few sizes, but I |
think the largest format one will be the best.
The wall tiles are easy. They had some gorgeous gloss white rectified tiles in a 300mm x 600mm. The large format tiles and white colour will reflect the light and make the bathroom appear larger. The rectified edging will make the wall look like one, seamless sheet.
|The white wall tiles look great, I think I like it laid vertically|
The 300mm x 600mm was Daryl's suggestion and originally I thought that would be too large, but they had a wall up in situ and it looked really good. So at least the wall tiles are sorted.
The floor tiles though are another matter and proving a lot more difficult than I thought. Originally I just wanted white to match the walls, but everyone has been trying to talk me out of it as they always look dirty with hair and fluff. It's a good point as the bathroom we have now is white and shows up all my black hair unless I vacuum every day. Even if I did go this route, it's very hard to get a pure white floor tile and the closest match was like a very light beige and when put with the white wall tile it just looks like a bit of a mismatch.
|Option 1 - White wall and floor tile combo|
Regardless, that's Option 1- looks great but probably very impractical. I put the outside in the natural light and they look the same but in certain angles and light they look different colours.
|Option 2 - Timber floorboard look tiles|
|Option 2 - Wooden floorboard tiles|
I like the whiter tile, only because we are thinking of making the cabinetry a timber look and it would be very hard to match a laminate with the darker tile. I'm definitely leaning toward this HOWEVER (and there's always a however), my budget is $33/m2 and how much is this? Yes, $144/m2. Yep, always the way. Daryl is looking for a way that we might be able to make this work...but I think it would be a miracle.
|Option 3 - Stone look tile|
I'm really stuck on this one, I really don't know which one, though I'm probably going more for Option 2, the timber floorboard look, however that will depend on budget.
What do you think?
